Bandung | Jun 7-11, 2010 | Rp. 8.250.000,-



Water is the blood of an industry. It is used as process water, cooling water, boiler feed water, drinking water, or in general as utility, in any industry such as chemical and petrochemical industry, fertilizer, mining, steel making, automotive, pulp & paper, textile, food processing, agricultural, municipal, power plant, and many other uses.

The sources of industrial water varies from river, lake, and other surface waters, well water, sea water, or produced water. The raw water is then treated, to some extent, to fulfill the specific requirements of that industry, and the environmental regulation. The treatment may also vary from one to another industry.


By attending this course, participants are able to broaden or reshape their knowledge on the related subjects of his or her area of responsibility, learn more detail about many aspects of the nature of water, different properties of raw waters, water and impurities analysis and its interpretation, internal and external treatment processes, roadmap of water treatment technology, equipment used and its operations, boiler feed water treatment, cooling water treatment, corrosion, fouling and scale controls, waste water treatment, biological treatment, waste water disposal, environmental regulation, discuss and consult their specific problems they are about to bring to the class, and share experiences with others.


After completion of this course, participants will understand what and how important industrial water is, how to treat different intake waters for different purposes, what the core of water treatment technology is, what equipment and chemicals should be used, how each equipment works, and how to evaluate the results of each specialized treatment. Participants will know what, why and how to treat waste water for disposal, to fulfill environmental requirements.
